Low Stakes Quizzing

As exams draw closer, assess the core knowledge that students often get wrong in a particular topic and narrow it down to 5- 10 questions that require short answers (quizzing!)

Ask the same questions every week/ every lesson for a sustained period of time, getting students to write the answers in the back of their books/ on a bit of paper/ on their Ipads. Ensure that the quiz is low stakes by not requiring students to feedback their quiz scores in front of the class and reassuring students if they make errors. This method is great for long term memory while minimising student stress and also building confidence. A short blog about it can be found here.
